As a public intellectual, Boris Nikolaevich Chicherin was Russia's foremost advocate of liberty of conscience. In Russia, no thinker worked more systematically in the defense of human dignity than him. Chicherin's mature political philosophy was an eclectic mixture based on his life-long exploration of ideas: a Russian variant of juste-milieu liberalism, Manchesterite political philosophy, and German metaphysical idealism. In the first book of Philosophy of Law Chicherin outlined the theoretical relationship between the individual and society. He described the individual as the "cornerstone of the social edifice. In the second book of Philosophy of Law Chicherin analyzed the problem of right; that is, of "liberty defined by statutory law". In Book Three of Philosophy of Law he presented his ethical theory. In Book Four, he sketched out a theory of social institutions.
